Retro Sketches | Challenge #133

Happy Saturday, friends! I hope everyone had a great week. 

I am busy, busy, busy created cards for the upcoming Gossamer Blue October release (whoo-hoo!), but I took a break from that and created a card for this week's Retro Sketches challenge. How cute this is sketch?!? 

I used Wplus9's Valentine Wishes stamp set to create the white panel of my card. The flowers and leaves are one stamp, so I did a little selective inking with pigment ink (Avery Elle Lemon Grass and Impress Fresh Ink in Pink Lemonade). I used Impress Fresh Ink in Chamomile for the banner, and Archival ink in black for the sentiments. 

While I love the images from this set, I primarily purchased it for the sentiments... I really like the font of "love you still" and the other big sentiments... very whimsical and pretty. 

I hope you can join us this week at Retro Sketches! And check back tomorrow for a card for next week's Paper Smooches Sparks challenge. I'll give you a hint... google eyes! :)
